"The last person to really make a career out being both so wonderful and outright fucking weird was one Frank Zappa. The world has, alas, moved on since then and unless I revive the college day plan of spiking the water system with acid it’s hard to see this gorgeousness gracing a chart near you."
"Sounds like a bunch of fuckin’ loons dickin’ about" says a passing woman.
"Yay!" says I: "Yay for the fuckin’ loons!" Obscure, and not a little deranged; a startling sonic collage, musically accomplished, and in a little decoupage box that they pasted up all on their own. Well worth buying.
"CHAP WITH WINGS, FIVE ROUNDS RAPID is an unusual and darkly menacing record, an album that like it or not manages to leave a lasting impression and a sinister aftertaste. Managing to get under your skin on this record, Thumpermonkey have delivered an album well worth investigating."
